Luxurious Silk Linen ~ Soft Solids ~ Abstract YarnAY-001
A luxurious blend of silk and linen hand painted in a series of soft solids. A creators range inspired by my painters pallete and designed to be paired with variegated or other solid yarns. This yarn is perfect for knitters, crocheters, weavers and makers of all kinds.
Spun in Canada, this 65/35 Silk linen blend is spun from European flax and Bombyx silk. This luxurious yarn has beautiful drape and is well suited to shawls, cowls, summer tops and scarves. The silk content adds beautiful lustre to any project and the linen content increases this yarns wearability. This yarn handles like a fingering weight yarn.
3/12 nm ~ Fingering 460m/504 yd 115gms/4oz
All abstract yarns are hand painted in small batches, each batch and each skein is therefore one of a kind. If using more then one skein I recommend that two skeins are worked at once, alternating regularly between the two.

This Silk/Linen blend should be hand washed for best results in a garment appropriate soap, for example Eucalan of Unicorn Fibre Wash and Rinse. See the Woolly Washing section of my shop for these products.
